The major in Liturgical Music at Providence College is inherently a portrayal of interdisciplinarity drawing from both theology and music. With concentrations primarily in voice or keyboards (organ and piano), the major prepares students with a liberal arts degree to serve as church musician and/or continue studies at the graduate level.
The number of semesters for lessons and ensembles depends upon when the student starts the major in music liturgy. Pianists are required to take at least 4 semesters of organ lessons.
Academic programs vary in their requirements. Students should consult with their faculty advisor and the Academic Guidebook to review the Academic Planning Form pertinent to their program of study. In addition, students should review course descriptions regarding any prerequisites for required courses. Graduation requirements include a minimum of 120 credit hours, although some academic programs may require additional credits.
